Gentlemen,

In October, we found a new species of drosophlid (Zaprionus indianus) in
Tallahassee, Florida. The species invaded Brazil in the 1990's and we
are pretty sure we are catching the northbound invasion in the act. This
species has been reported as a pest on peach and citrus in Brazil.

The article is submitted but has not yet been published, but if you are
interested, just mail me.

Regards,

Kim van der Linde
